I am 230 Pounds and have began doing group rides that involve big climbs(by Kansas standards at least) and long and fast, albeit strait, descents. My current wheel set is heavy, and shedding spokes like non other. So, i am trying to decided between deep v's, fusions, or open pros laced to ultegra hubs. The open pros seem sufficient(and cheap!!!), but, i am open to other ideas. My main concern is a budget wheelset that i can trust not to kill me on pot hole riddled downhills.
More importantly, as i think any of those options will work fine, who are some good retailers? BWW and PBike have great prices, but i am guessing are machine made to make them that cheap. Does that even matter so long as my shop checks them out when i get them? Who else can a clyde trust?
